Dear Whitman Families,
Welcome you to an exciting new year at Whitman! We have worked very hard to prepare for a school year filled with fun and rigorous learning opportunities for all of our students.
We believe children will achieve at high levels when the adults in their lives recognize and accept them as unique individuals. You, as a parent, are a valuable component of your child’s education. As a part of our team, we encourage you to attend school functions, communicate with your child’s teacher and to support your child’s learning through activities at home such as daily reading and talking about your child’s day at school. Please feel free to schedule a meeting or reach out to your child’s teacher any time you have concerns or questions about your child’s progress. Our team is here for you and your family!
Parents are always welcome at Whitman and are encouraged to become involved. Over the past three years, you have shared your thoughts and suggestions with our instructional team via surveys and questionnaires, as well as during our Parent Teas and evening events. We have used that information to write our Comprehensive Achievement Plan (CAP), as we want to make sure we are meeting all of your family's needs. Thank you for being a key part of our team.
Here’s to an amazing school year!
Art teachers in Portland Public Schools don’t just teach – many are artists in their own right. Four PPS teachers were among the 30 educators from Oregon selected to have their work displayed at the “Teachers as Artists – After the Demo” exhibition currently on display at the Maryhill Museum of Art in Goldendale, Wash.
Since 1963, the PTA Clothing Closet has operated out of Portland Public Schools and is legendary among other West Coast PTAs for its organization and number of students it clothes each year. Last year the Clothing Closet served over 1,600 students, and those numbers climb higher as families face financial crises.
